Default Any MotoGP fans?

I know it's a loney crusade but are there any MotoGP fans out there? Season starts tomorrow in Qatar with qualifying and race on Sunday Mar 29. Quick rundown on the top category of motorcycle racing... The fastest and current 2 time World Champ is Spaniard Marc Marquez on Repsol sponsored Honda, then 9 time world champ, Valentino Rossi on a Factory Yamaha... Way down on the list is the last standing American Nicky Hayden a.k.a. The Kentucky Kid and 2007 Champion aboard a Malaysian energy drink "Drive" sponsored Honda. He also has his own line of Tissot Chronographs... Previous versions to match the team's he raced with, Ducati and Repsol Honda...

Unfortunately it's only televised on Fox Sports 1 here in the US. Sometimes a local network will pick up a race if it's Stateside and there are only two now... One in Austin at the Circuit of the Americas, in April and another at Indy's Brickyard in August.

I love to watch Moto GP and I would like Nicky to be competitive. But last year Marquez just cleaned up everything and it got to the point it was no fun to watch anymore. I wish World Superbike was more available on my channels.

With Ducati up at the top of Qualifying maybe we will have a more interesting season!

I'm a huge fan. Watched it last night and it was sure an incredible race to the end. Rossi on Yamaha battling it out with two Ducatis. Marquez took a wide turn in the beginning of the race and although he was back in 17th position, he was able to move up to 5th position.

Rossi won ! Looking forward to this 2015 season !


Oh just a quick fact note - OP: Nicky Hayden won the Moto GP championship in 2006 not 2007.

Love MotoGP but don't forget to watch Moto2+3 as well. Those youngsters sure know how to run an exciting race! Waiting for the start of the COTA race at the moment, start is postponed due to water on the track.

I like watching it. But don't follow it. So I wouldn't know one guy from another. But it is fun to watch.

The most recent race was nuts. Buddy's bike broke. Drops to 7th. Runs over the wall, grabs a new bike, makes pole position after falling 3 minutes behind.

Rossi is in it to win it this year as long as he keeps riding the way he's currently riding

I enjoy a race on occasion, not a big fan. Found this really interesting though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TTXGP

Definitely a fan of MotoGP here! Remember those days of Biaggi and Gibernau trying to unseat the Doctor?! Yeah.... These days are still exciting, with YAMAHA currently on top and the Doctor and Lorenzo (currently my 1st and 2nd favorite riders) in the top two slots!
